Indicative core modules include:
Study and support
The course will be delivered through a combination of methods including taught modules; lectures; interactive workshops; small group teaching and individual project supervision (MSc only). There will also be an expectation that students will engage in independent study during the course. All staff teaching on the course is research-active in their field of interest which includes members from the Communication for Inclusion Research Unit (CIRU) and the Specific Language Impairment Research Unit (SLIRU). Students will also have access to the extensive new facilities within the Division of Psychology and the University’s Virtual Learning Environment.
A balanced range of assessments will be used to assess students on a modular basis including: coursework, essays, examinations, presentations, and an independent research project.
Psychology resources and facilities
The University has made significant financial investment in the Psychology Division over recent years upgrading accommodation, facilities and equipment used exclusively for the provision of our psychology courses and for research. We have a state-of-the-art undergraduate teaching laboratory suite opened in 2006, and a further phase of development, opened in 2007, includes a second teaching laboratory specifically catering for postgraduate students.
In addition there are specialist suites dedicated to particular areas of interest in psychology, including:
Alongside these are new flexible cubicles for student project work, a psychometric test bank library, and a technical workshop.
